Bebinca, also known as bibik or bebinka, is a traditional layer cake of Goa, India derived from Indo-Portuguese cuisine. Traditionally, Bebinka has between 7 and 16 layers, but it can be modified per one's convenience and taste. It is especially popular during Christmas, but is available in Goa year round due to tourist demand. It is also easily available to carry and preserve for a long time or eaten fresh.
Preparing bebinca is a slow process. The batter is made with flour, sugar, ghee, egg yolk, and coconut milk. The batter is spread thinly onto a grill and the layers are stacked atop one another. Bebinca may be garnished with nutmeg or slivered almonds.
